Catching Up 02 Nov 2011

Back home at STUK HQ after an amazing week on the road in the UK. Below I'll try and catch up with everything that has come through this last week but first I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for making this such a fun week including the legenday Alice Cooper and Shep Gordon, the super cool Steve and Karen Hunter, the well respected Tommy Henriksen, Bass God Chuck Garric, the drum superstar Glen Sobel, the devine Miss Orianthi, Cesare and the whole crew (without whom there would be NO show), Pat Nowak, Andy Michael and everyone who works so hard to put on the greatest show on the planet.
Special thanks are due to the amazing Toby Mamis who came through for the fans yet again this year, going out of his way, even when snowed under with other things to do, to personally help sort out problems that arose for fans especially in London and Manchester, and do his very best to make sure everyone was taken care of in the face of venue stupidity. I doubt many bands have someone who cares as much as Toby about such things and we are very lucky to have him. Thank You all.

Anyway, on with the news in no particular order. Apologise if some of this is too late but getting a connection on the road proved very difficult this year.

Apparently, Ori was trapped in an elevator between the 2nd and 3rd floor, and it had DROPPED 4 floors before stopping there.  Our thoughtful crew guys and Karen Hunter patiently hung out at the elevator doors for an hour and a half while the engineers tried to open the doors, chatting with her and trying to keep her mind on other things... Elevator music can be lethal in large doses you know...  She was in there so long that eventually they decided to pump some oxygen into the elevator, just in case, but there was little danger of her running out of air, or of the pure oxygen reacting with Ori’s astonishingly blonde hair.  She finally made it out in good spirits, and the hotel comped her stay, upgraded her and comped all of her food and drinks... Pretty good idea Ori, I’m going to remember that. I’m on to your tricks..."

Press Release:
In the midst of the “No More Mr. Nice Guy” world tour, Alice Cooper will treat fans to a special performance at the legendary Whisky a Go-Go on Thursday, September 15 2011, 9:00pm. Cooper will take the stage of the legendary rock venue, on the Sunset Strip, for the first time since Alice Cooper the band performed there live in 1969 with Led Zeppelin.

"The Whisky had an option for a return engagement, but we got busy and it just slipped our minds.   No, seriously, the Whisky gig we did with Led Zeppelin is something we all talk about to this day.  It's going to be amazing to go back as a straight ahead LA bar band... We might even take requests.  I figure, if we could do it in London, we can do it at the Whisky.  And it's LA, so you never know who else might show up..."

Earlier this summer, Cooper played the world renowned 100 Club in London with special guest guitarist Johnny Depp and received rave reviews. The London Times gave the evening 4 stars, while Kerrang stated, quite simply, “Truly, this is an amazing gig, priceless. Every Alice Cooper fan deserves to be here”.

Guitarist Orianthi to Join Alice Cooper on No More Mr. Nice Guy World Tour

Alice Cooper announced today that eminent guitar prodigy Orianthi will join his band, replacing departing guitarist Damon Johnson, for the next leg of his 2011 "No More Mr. Nice Guy" world tour starting September 22, 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand. Currently in progress, the tour hits ninety plus cities, covering five continents, including Europe and North America twice over.

At the young age of 26, Orianthi has already experienced what most aspiring musicians only dream of. She's opened for her hero, Steve Vai; backed Carrie Underwood; traded solos with Carlos Santana; shared the stage with the King of Pop (Michael Jackson) and accompanied Alice during his live performance of "School's Out" on the 2010 season finale of American Idol.

"It's very difficult to find someone to match the talents of Damon Johnson," commented Cooper, "but not only did we find someone who is more than up to the challenge…she also looks WAY better."

Orianthi will join world-renowned guitarist Steve Hunter (toured and recorded with Cooper and Lou Reed) and Tommy Henriksen (co-wrote and played on Cooper's upcoming release); drummer Glen Sobel and Alice's longtime bassist Chuck Garric round out the band.

"I'm super excited to go on tour with Alice," said Orianthi. "It's a huge honor to be able to get on stage and jam with an icon."

Orianthi will debut with the band for a performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Friday September 9, 2011 on NBC. 

In addition to the worldwide "No More Mr. Nice Guy Tour," Cooper is busy promoting Welcome 2 My Nightmare (the long-awaited sequel to his 1975 classic album "Welcome to My Nightmare").

Goodbye Damon? 28 Aug 2011

Damon JohnsonIt is looking increasingly likely that  Damon Johnson has left the Alice Cooper band, playing his final show last night. There have been rumours he would be leaving for some weeks but last night Damon tweeted "The legendary Pine Knob amphitheater in Detroit tonight. My last show with Alice. Gonna be grand!" He followed this after the show with "I love you, Alice Cooper. And Chuck, Tommy, Steve, and Glen. And Keri, Jimmy, Eric, Ryan, and Tommy C. With all my heart."
It's well known Damon is reactivating his band Brother Cane next year and there are also rumours he will be joining his all time favourite band Thin Lizzy, but in recent interviews Damon has been avoiding direct questions on his future with Alice.
When asked by Brave Words recently about his future with Alice he replied "If I could run my own business and have some success with that; I just think that’s everyone’s goal in life. It’s to work for yourself and your friends. I’ve been working with my friends in the Alice Cooper band for five of the last seven years, but at the end of the day it’s Alice’s vision, his career, and his show. I’ve had so much fun doing that, but Alice is fully aware of my abilities and skills as a songwriter and a singer in my own right. I just have that itch now and I want to give it a shot.”
If true (and it certainly seems that way) then I'm sure we all wish him every success with whatever he chooses to do in the future. He will be solely missed by everyone who had the pleasure of seeing or meeting him at shows. Naturally STUK will continue to bring you news about anything Damon is involved in.

In other news MassLive have posted photos and a review from the Northampton show. The Buffalo show is reviewed by Buffalo News and Buffalo Rising.

Alice At Home 25 Aug 2011

I should preface this news item by saying that, to be honest, when I first saw it I hadn't a clue what it was all about, and nor had anyone I asked! But thanks to some helpful forum members who are probably much younger then I am it's now a little clearer.
Sony have announced that following a scheduled maintenance today of their 'Playstation Home', players will be be greeted by "a horde of unwelcomed zombies shuffling about. The AAA store gets Alice Cooper and his album 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare'."
What this apparently means in English is that 'Playstation Home', an online virtual world where players can make homes and avatars and decorate them with things bought from a store,  will now feature "a whole host of incredible new items stamped with  own unique and darkly warped twist including mind-blowing stage props and one-of-a-kind outfits from his latest tour." They even have a picture of a 'virtual Alice' outside their virtual store!
So if you have a Playstation make sure you go and check it out!

"Greetings, I’m sitting in a hospital room in Scottsdale, awaiting surgery on Sunday. I’ve had to postpone my tour dates till November. The Magic Bag is rebooked for Nov 11. Surgery is for some bleeding in my brain, caused by a fall & banging my head on the edge of my pool. I thought nothing of it, but my doctor ordered a CT scan just in case. He found swelling/slow bleeding that needs to be relieved before I can fly to Michigan. My doctor is Dr Zabramsky, the man who saved Brett Michael’s life. He’s also one of Gabrielle Giffords’ team. I’m in great hands. I’m feeling fine. Don’t worry. I’ll update you next week. We’re rebooking White’s Bar & all dates. My love to you all"

Actor Johnny Depp arrived on stage for 'I'm Eighteen' and 'School's Out' after posted teaser photos on facebook.  A great surprise but the real stars were Alice and the band who rocked like there was no tomorrow.
There's are plenty of personal reviews starting to appear in the forums and our own photos are up in the photo section if you want to check them out. There's already some press appearing as well with The SunThe Guardian, Entertainment Focus NME, and OnTheRedCarpet running features with some pics.

Says Alice: “It’s been a while since we played such an intimate venue, but strip away the theatrics and we are a pedal-to-the-metal rock band, born in clubs like the 100 Club.  We play every show like that anyway and it will be fantastic to reconnect in that atmosphere. This show comes with a health warning ‘We don’t do acoustic, this will be loud’.”

Bulgaria Canceled 14 Jun 2011

Acording to Novinite the June 21st Sonisphere show in Bulgaria has been canceled.

The Daily Star has another article/video this time about Halloween.

The Independent has an interesting article about the Classic Rock 'Fan Packs' highlighting the forthcoming 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare' release.

Classic Rock Nightmare 12 Jun 2011 had a few words with Alice at Download. According to Alice the new album 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare" will be released in a Classic Rock Magazine 'Halloween Survival Pack' which would likely be similar to the recent Slash, Whitesnake and Motorhead releases by Classic Rock which included the album in a book sleeve, a full magazine and other odds and ends.
According to the album will be released in September while Atmostfear have the following info:
"'Welcome 2 My Nightmare' features some other familiar faces from ooper's past. The original Nightmare tandem of Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner played on the album, while Vince Gill plays on a track called 'Runaway Train'. And surviving Cooper band members Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith reunited on the track 'When Hell Comes Home'.
'Welcome 2 My Nightmare', meanwhile, will have plenty of similarities to its predecessor. "There are certain songs where we let some of the themes from (the original) 'Nightmare' slip in," Cooper tells Billboard. "All of a sudden you'll hear the little piano part from 'Steven' or from 'The Awakening.' I wanted (the albums) to be married together. I think we even make reference to a couple of characters from the original (album)."

Virtual Festivals have a short review of Download.

Download and Press 12 Jun 2011

Download have posted an interview video from the festival site on YouTube. By all accounts Alice blew the place apart last night with a longer set then the Irish shows which included 'Halo Of Flies' and 'Hey Stoopid' which were cut from the shorter sets. Rock Industry has some photos up already.

Dick Wagner posted the following on his Facebook site regarding the forthcoming album:
"Played my first recording session since my heart attack this week-Alice Cooper's "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" - that's me & orchestra on "Underture." My song "Something to Remember Me By" is also on Alice's new album. I think its a hit. That would be a comeback blessing. Thks for the friendship & encouragement. Been a rough 4 yrs. You've all played an important part in my "comeback" to life & music. Love you, my friends."

Rocker Paris has a review and photos from the Paris show.

More Kerrang 10 Jun 2011

The BBC have a short video report from the Kerrang awards last night here. There's a piece and photo in tonights London Evening Standard as well, but most strange is a report from the awards by Heat magazine, which is so obviously made up. We all know Alice simply wouldn't say that, and the pic is from the Hall Of Fame show.

Alexandra Palace now has a feature on the London Halloween show. As with last year there will be "freak" auditions held in Hyde Park on June 27th. Quote: "Auditions are June 27th in London’s Hyde park. Just like last year, go to to submit audition tapes by June 22nd.

Box setLast nights Jagermeister event in Battersea, London was a blast. While the much talked about 4D element may have not quite lived up to the hype the event as a whole was immense fun, as was the free bar!

All through the night a large airbrushed mural was created behind one of the bars showing the original band, while Jager-girls circulated with free shots and images and movies were projected onto the walls of the iconic powerstation building. All in all a well organised and fun event.
Some press reports and photos have started to appear such as FlushTheFashion's article here, and photos of the mural being created here. The Drinks Business also had an article yesterday with a little background on the event. More coverage will surely follow.

Jaegermeister Ice Cold Event 13 Apr 2011

Box setJaegermeister announce the ground-breaking exclusive ‘Jaegermeister Ice Cold Event’ taking place on Wednesday 11 May 2011 at  Battersea Power Station, starring legendary rock ‘n’ roll royalty Alice Cooper appearing in 4D.

The ‘Jaegermeister Ice Cold Event’ is set to make history as the UK’s first holographic 4D rock gig and will celebrate the release of the new Alice Cooper Box Set 'Old School: 1964-1974'. Featuring original band members Alice Cooper, Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce, plus Steve Hunter standing-in for the late Glen Buxton, the ‘Jaegermeister Ice Cold Event’ will be the first time the group has ‘appeared’ together in the UK since 1972. (Please note: This is a multmedia event and the band will not be there in person. The show will feature a specially recorded concert which is then given the 4D holographic treatment for presentation).

“We couldn’t resist this,” says Alice, “Working with Jaegermeister to appear as holograms on the other side of the Atlantic is the ultimate experience, a cutting-edge conjuring trick that celebrates the future and our history. We can’t wait to see the results.”

Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, June 6th sees the release of the Alice Cooper super deluxe box set - OLD SCHOOL: 1964-1974. To launch this treasure chest, the band will go back to Alice’s holographic roots.

In March 1973, Alice was the subject of the world’s first 3D hologram piece of art, created by the surrealist (and Alice fan) Salvador Dali. An admirer of the band’s shock tactics, Dali immortalised Alice as a hologram, and now the band are taking advantage of cutting edge technology once again, partnering with Jaegermeister for this word exclusive experience.

This innovation is no surprise to Alice fans. Alice Cooper flipped hippie ideals on their head and astonished the world, "driving a stake through the heart of the Love Generation," as the group's namesake put it. Heavy Metal took the imagery, punk took the tunes, rock and pop took the showmanship as fans the world over fell in love with the band’s macabre sense of humor.

Fuse TV have added a couple more clips from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame events last week including a full version of  the band playing 'School's Out'.  From what I've heard Fuse disapointingly only aired a heavy edited version of the show at the weekend which seems a bit of a wasted opportunity, athough maybe more will be aired at some stage. For an alternative fan filmed clip hilighting the SO Kids from the NYC  Ronald Macdonald home check out this video which included some more of Alice's speech. Rob Zombie's Speech can be seen here. There is also the closing titles from the Fuse show showing Alice singing 'Da Do Ron Ron' and showing the band's thanks listings.

Superfan Paul Brenton and Renne Dunaway held a party Sunday night at the R bar in NYC for Dennis Dunaway. Dennis and Blue Coupe played a couple tunes and all the members from  Dennis' other bands (of recent years) DDP and 5th Avenue Vampires were in attendence. They also aired an uncut version of Rob Zombie's induction speech. Check out videos here and here.

"I'm very happy with working with Bob (Ezrin) again. It's 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare', and it's the next nightmare. Thirty years later, he has another nightmare, and this one is even worse than the last one. . . I haven't worked with Bob in a long time. After the 35th anniversary of 'Nightmare', I said, 'Why don't we start writing something else?' And he said, 'Why don't we just do part two?' We'd never done part two, so I went, 'That's a great idea. Let's get me and you together, I think we can still get Steven Hunter and Dick Wagner. We'll put some of the original people on it and add some new people."
In other interviews Alice has suggested a Halloween release date but of course nothing is fixed in stone yet.
